Humanities Cultural Programme

An active programme of public events powered by research from across the Humanities, bringing the world’s leading performers and artists to Oxford – both in-person and online.

The Humanities Cultural Programme aims to share research with, and learn from, as wide an audience as possible. It will use the facilities in the Schwarzman Centre to put on exhibitions, theatrical performances, film screenings, and musical performances. Launched ahead of the opening of the building, the Cultural Programme is already connecting humanities research to new audiences. State-of-the-art performance spaces will engage the Oxford community and the public at large, including visitors to Oxford from around the world. Modern amenities and digital capabilities will finally allow for the full breadth of Oxford’s unparalleled collections and research in the Humanities to be shared more widely.

Students will be a key focus of the Cultural Programme. They will meet, learn from and collaborate with some of the leading figures in the arts. They will put on plays, exhibitions and performances. They will work with academics across Oxford and the wider world to discuss how the Humanities can contribute to key issues like the environment.

Engaging new audiences and participants of all ages, the Programme is a founding stone of the future Stephen A Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities, a new building due to open in late 2025.
